Rudy for NY guv?


Filed Under Races 2010 on Jun 30 

The CNN Political Ticker reported late yesterday that Rudy Giuliani is pondering a run for governor of New York in 2010.

Asked by CNN’s John Roberts on American Morning if he’s seriously considering a gubernatorial bid, Giuliani said “I’m thinking about it but I don’t know if I’m at the point of seriously considering it. It’s a little too early.”

Giuliani would instantly become a favorite to beat incumbent Democrat David Patterson, that is, if Patterson is the nominee. Patterson faces a potential challenge from Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, who is currently pasting Patterson in a purse of polls.

Say that three times fast.

Cuomo would also likely be tough for Giuliani to topple in a general election, especially if he runs for guv like he ran for President.

In other words, badly.
